Final Notes

Hallux rigidus remains a complex problem that affects a seemingly larger segment of the population. The desire to maintain joint range of motion is common among individuals facing surgical intervention. Studies continue to support the role of arthrodesis with its predictable outcome but advances in procedures aimed at preserving range of motion appear to be promising.
